“I’ve only seen one Carlos Hyde, and the Carlos Hyde I know has been healthy and full go,” HC Chip Kelly said.
“Our style and scheme adapts to whoever it is,” Kelly added, “but he certainly has the skillset to be an outstanding running back at this level, because he can do everything.”
“You’re looking for a guy that can be a three-down back, and that’s what Carlos is,” Kelly said.
Kelly’s high-tempo offense figures to lean heavily on Hyde, assuming he’s durable enough to lead an offense that’s still unsure whether Blaine Gabbert will outlast Colin Kaepernick for the starting quarterback role.
Hyde was the #14 RB (PPR) through the first six weeks before missing the rest of the season with a foot injury. Kelly’s teams in Philadelphia had an average ranking of 7.3 in total rush attempts, so Hyde should get plenty of work as the team’s lead back, provided they can stay competitive on game day.
